Japan’s secrecy over the true extent of Fukushima radiation
Japan Used Claims of Inaccuracy To Divert Release of Critical Radioactive Material at Fukushima Nuclear Plant, Spy Ghana 12 June 12, Japanese officials have failed to justify why it took them over a month to disclose large-scale releases of radioactive material in mid-March at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
A special government tool had been producing critical maps, and other
data, hourly since the first hours after the catastrophic earthquake
and tsunami, some of the maps clearly showed a plume of nuclear
contamination extending to the northwest of the plant, beyond the
areas that were initially evacuated.
Japan’s nuclear safety agency and the science ministry had data on the
spread of radioactive materials that could have prevented unnecessary
radiation exposure, but decided to sit on it instead of reporting it
to the crisis management center at the prime minister’s office……
as it turned out later its predictions were fairly accurate, yet
SPEEDI data was never used in mapping out the evacuation routes for
Fukushima Prefecture residents.
A new report from Japan’s science ministry casts serious doubt on the
officials that the readings were inaccurate, and exposes that central
government confirmed that the SPEEDI radiation fallout simulations
were accurate, and reliable, but still refused to release the data for
more than one month after the nuclear accident in Fukushima.
The science ministry’s report reveals that not only were ministry
officials worried about the simulations, they also double checked the
